To National Theta Kappa Convention 

April 3, 4, and 5 were busy days 
for the Gulf Park Alpha Theta 
chapter of Phi Theta Kappa who 
were hostesses for the 1952 Na- 
tional Convention. Visitors from 
some twenty states were seen on 
the campus of Gulf Park enjoying 
the treats of the sunny South. 

Phi Theta Kappa is an honorary 
fraternity found on the campuses of 
Junior Colleges and it stands for a 
high standard of scholastic achieve- 
ment. Not only must a Phi Theta 
Kappa member live up to the ideals 
of wisdom, but must also meet 
the qualifications of leadership, 
loyalty, citizenship, and honesty. 

Registration for this convention 
began on Thursday morning, April 
3, and lasted on into the afternoon. 
Delegates registered at the Mark- 
ham Hotel where most of them al- 
ready had rooms reserved. A 
guided tour of the coast was con- 

ducted after the completion of regis- 
tration and an afternoon business 
meeting. At this business meeting, 
Ann Cox, Gulf Park Chapter Presi- 
dent, welcomed the two hundred 
fifty visiting delegates. 

Supper on the sand Thursday 
night thrilled many of the inland 
visitors. The Glee Club program, 
after a business session in the Audi- 
torium, was an added delight. Fri- 
day's treat came in the form of a 
trip to Ship Island for a day of fun. 
Dinner on deck consisted of indivi- 
dual boxed fried chicken dinners 
with all the trimmings. 

Friday night the Gulf Park cam- 
pus presented a scene of loveliness 
with all the Phi Theta Kappas in 
evening clothes. A formal Banquet 
was held in the Dining Room with 
Dr. Hogarth acting as toastmaster 
for the occasion, and Connie Leich- 
hardt giving a special toast to all 

the visitors. Connie's toast was 
answered by a response from 
(ieorge Deen, National President 
of Phi Theta Kappa. A very enter- 
taining program was presented by 
Gulf Park students. 

Immediately after the banquet, 
dancing began in the Auditorium. 
With the typically Southern theme 
"Cotton Ball" carried out through 
various decorations, the dance was 
a complete success. More Gulf Park 
talent was displayed during the 
floor show. 

After a morning of business ses- 
sions, a lunch on the Gulf Park 
north campus was served to all 
Phi Theta Kappa members, and 
then it was time for regretful good- 
byes. Gulf Park will long remember 
the thrill of being hostess for the 
biggest event of the Phi Theta Kap- 
pa year, the National Convention 
of 1952.

To Statistics 

The honor this year of being MISS GULF PARK 
goes to Camille Colquitt. "Camel," as she is popular- 
ly called, is a favorite in classroom and on campus, 
and works zealously at any job she attempts. 

MISS GULF PARK hails from Tifton, Georgia, 
and her parents are Mr. and Mrs. Adrian B. Colquitt. 
Anything concerning Georgia is all right with 
Camille, and we're sure Georgia must be proud of 

Being President of Delta Alpha Sigma sorority, 
Associate Editor of the Sea Gull, and a member of 
the Student Council keeps Camille "pretty busy," 
but she still finds time to participate actively in 
the Athletic Association, Jet Maskers, Phi Theta 
Kappa, Romance Language Club, and Y.W.C.A. 
Cabinet. "Camel" loves sports but her "secretly" 
favorite one is basketball in which she excels. 

Hats off to the perfect selection of MISS 
GULF PARK of 1952— Camille Colquitt.

"A thing of beauty is a joy for- 
ever!" A graceful walk, a willowy 
figure, beautiful red hair, shining 
brown eyes, and a Georgia accent — 
these are the outstanding features 
of Gulf Park's MOST ATTRAC- 
TIVE Eloise Inman. From Albany, 
Georgia, "Wessie," as she is known 
to everybody, is the daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. John S. Inman. A 
Practical Arts major, Wessie is 
interested in having a home of her 

own and Mike is a favorite topic 
of conversation. 

Wessie belongs to Sigma Psi 
Iota, Athletic Association, Dance 
League, Glee Club, Practical Arts 
Club, and Samovar Club. She also 
serves as Vice-President of the 
Y.W.C.A. Pretty Eloise who is al- 
ways attractively dressed and well- 
groomed always rates a second 
glance and her beauty has acquired 
a host of admirers for her. 

other than blue eyed, brunette Ann 
Cox. Ann knows how to apply that 
intellect to almost any situation, 
but don't conclude that she is a 
book addict. Instead of being buried 
with her books, Ann prefers sitting 
at the piano, playing anything from 
Bach to Boogie, or announcing 
"Gulf Park College On The Air" 
over WGCM, or guarding with all 
her strength under that Junior 
basketball goal. If you've ever heard 
an enthusiastic group singing 
Boomer Sooner you can bet that 
was Ann giving the final cheer, too. 
A true "Okie" Ann is the daughter 

of Mrs. Roscoe Cox of Chandler, 

President of Phi Theta Kappa 
and Assistant Editor of Tammy 
Howl, Ann has a hard time finding 
time for any studying. In fact, if 
there's a need of a fourth in bridge, 
"Coxann" will forget about that 
French assignment. Ann is also a 
member of Delta Chi Sigma. 
Athletic Association, Glee Club, 
Jet Maskers, Romance Language 
Club, and the Student Council. 
You can count on Ann always 
coming out on top with a thinking 
cap that truly earns her the title of 

Barbara Ann Henson, better 
known as Bobbie, is the MOST 
POPULAR girl at Gulf Park. 
Daughter of Dr. and Mrs. George 
G. Henson of Knoxville, Tennes- 
see, Bobbie is a Secretarial Science 
major. Serving as Vice President of 
Sigma Psi Iota and President of 
the Secretarial Science Club, Bobbie 
also finds herself quite busy on the 
Y.W.C.A. cabinet, Sea Gull Staff 
and as a member of the Athletic As- 
sociation and the Jet Maskers. 
Despite her many responsibilities, 

she always has time to give her 
friendly greeting "Hi dorling" to 
everyone. Found most often in the 
Senior Smoker or the Hut, Bobbie 
is always ready for a hand of 
bridge or just a talk. The Universi- 
ty of Tennessee is one of her favor- 
ite subjects, but the Smokey 
Mountain Club or anything connect- 
ed with East Tennessee is also a 
favorite. Short dark hair, a happy 
walk, friendly brown eyes, and a 
smile show you why Bobbie Henson 
is Gulf Park's MOST POPULAR. 

to these 

Sailing, basketball, hockey, volley- 
ball, softball, and swimming are 
only a few of the sports in which 
MOST ATHLETIC, Peggy Dierks, 
excels as President of the Athletic 
Association. She has a big job 
planning entertainment for the 
whole campus, but those sparkling 
blue eyes show us that "Peg" really 
enjoys it. 

The home town of MOST 
ATHLETIC is Columbus, Georgia, 
and Peggy's parents are Mr. and 

Mrs. Henry E. Dierks. She is an 
active member of Delta Chi Sigma, 
Jet Maskers, Y.W.C.A. and Water 

Sleeping is Peggy's favorite pas- 
time and don't be surprised if you 
see her eyes close in an early morn- 
ing class. "Seven o'clock is too 
early for anybody to get up!" 

Peggy's ease on the athletic field 
and her skill in sports point to her 
as truly Gulf Park's MOST 

Margaret Ann Clayton,, daughter 
of Mrs. Robert M. Clayton of 
Hannibal, Missouri, is the natural 
choice for MOST CAPABLE. As 
Editor of the Sea Gull, Margie is 
always making announcements 
about pictures and staff meetings, 
and has that know-how to manage 
her job very efficiently. An attrac- 
tive blonde, Margie's favorite topic 
of conversation is either about her 
new niece or her current love. If 
you meet someone with paint 
splotches all over her and a sniff 
brings the smell of turpentine your 
way, then you've met our artist, 
Margie. Margie might inspire you 

to increase your vocabulary, too, for 
she can astound one with her favor- 
ite tongue twisters. That proves 
what one acquires from reading so 
many books, you see. 

Although kept busy with the Sea 
Gull editorship, vice-presidency of 
the Senior Class, and social chair- 
man for Jet Maskers, Margie finds 
time to knit and write scores of 
letters. She is also an active member 
of the Athletic Association, Dance 
League, Samovar Club, Y.W.C.A., 
Delta Chi Sigma, and Phi Theta 
Kappa. Tammy salutes MOST 
CAPABLE Margie Clayton. 

Try to name something that 
Nancy Rogers can't do well. Bet 
you're stumped, and that's exactly 
why she makes such a perfect 
MOST TALENTED. Speech is her 
major, so most of her talent is di- 
rected toward plays, radio programs, 
and readings, but music also gains 
her attention. 

Nancy's parents are Mr. and 
Mrs. Robert W. Rogers of Houston, 
Texas. Nancy is a true Texan, 

proudly sings her state songs, and 
always upholds a Texas "boast." 

As President of Y.W.C.A., Nancy 
has her hands full of "Y-Hut 
problems," but her work in Jet 
Maskers, Delta Chi Sigma, Athletic 
Association, Glee Club, and the 
Dance League certainly isn't neg- 

Nancy's talents are definitely 
versatile and make her title of 
MOST TALENTED absolutely 

and these 

Have you seen that "poodle" 
brunette jitterbugging at the Y-Hut 
lately? if you have, you'll recognize 
her as Sally Shultz, MOST 
ORIGINAL. Sally's pep and spirit 
are present in everything she does, 
including her fluent conversations. 
In other words, she likes to talk 
and one of her favorite topics of 
conversation is "Jimbo." 

Now don't think jitterbugging 
and conversing are Sally's only 
accomplishments. She also happens 
to be President of the Bit and Spur 
Club, Vice-President of Romance 

Language Club, and an active mem- 
ber of Jet Maskers, Y.W.C.A., Glee 
Club and Delta Chi Sigma sorority. 
Sally is the daughter of Mrs. W. O. 
Shultz of Ft. Worth, Texas. 

Someday when you're walking 
down Senior Hall and you see 
a snappy looking character sporting 
a riding habit and calling "Help 
me", you'll see Sally Shultz merely 
returning from the stables and 
echoing her favorite expression. For 
all these reasons and many more, 
we think that the title of MOST 
ORIGINAL suits Sally to a tee. 

Joanne Payes, Gulf Park's BEST 
SPORT is a favorite around GPC. 
"Payes-oh" is often seen in her 
white overalls going to play practice, 
headed for the Speech Workshop, 
or relaxing at the Y Hut. 

A Speech major, Joanne is the 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William 
John Payes of Barrington, Illinois. 
She is quite an athlete, too, and is 
constantly in the fighting in hockey, 
basketball, and volleyball. If you 
had a peep in Hardy 3, you might 
conclude that our "Payes-oh" has 
quite an artistic touch, too. It 

seems that she has talent in the 
field of interior decoration. Think- 
ing of "Payes-oh," you naturally 
think of beautiful cashmere 
sweaters, also. Being treasurer of 
her sorority, Sigma Psi Iota, she 
has money worries, but also finds 
time to participate in the Athletic 
Association, Jet Maskers, Romance 
Language Club, and the Y.W.C.A. 
For the well-rounded BEST 
SPORT who has a host of friends 
for herself, Gulf Park proudly ac- 
claims blonde, blue-eyed Joanne 

To the pretty, petite Lucy Hils- 
man, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. 
P. L. Hilsman of Albany, Georgia, 
goes the well deserved honor of 
Lucy was chosen because she holds 
high the standards of Gulf Park 
in scholastic achievements, as well 
as being a friendly and charming 
campus personality. With her rosy 

cheeks, blonde curls, and sweet 
smile one might compare Lucy 
Hilsman to a little French doll. The 
girls are envious of Lucy's waist- 
line, too. She is a Sophomore, 
Secretary of the Beta Club, Chaplin 
of Delta Chi Sigma, a cabinet mem- 
ber of the Y.W.C.A., and a mem- 
ber of the Athletic Association.

Cxzicznt Citu 

I am a camera. My vitals have 
just found rebirth in a new roll 
of film. Today is the high day of 
the Mardi Gras celebration; my 
owner and conspirator is a Junior 
from Gulf Park College. I shall be 
her closest companion for a day 
here in the Crescent City. It is 
her desire to experience this new 
bizarre situation; I am duty bound 
to record all for her memory book. 

The exodus to New Orleans 
comes so early that my shutters 
are still shut by the sleepy arms 
of Morpheus. 

The real excitement begins a la 
chaperon as our destination is 
reached and we find ourselves in 
the bustling station crowds. But at 
this time of year the word crowd 
loses its value of adequately sug- 
gested description and makes way 
for a numberless throng of humans 
that have ccme to see and do in 
this strange city. 

The pre-lenten crowds sweep us 
along in their gala confusion. Many 
are disguised and masked to hide 
themselves from worldly identity, 
and those that are not disengaged 
from their usual make up of life, 
do all that enters their desires with 
added impetus. 

There are artists, clowns, pink 
elephants, men from Mars, canni- 
bals, gypsies, ring masters, ballet 
dancers, devils, angels, and closely 
akin to the last, the wide-eyed Gulf 
Park girls who are captivatingly 
intrigued by it all. 

But the street does not beget all 
the gaiety. Behind the scenes the 
vendors, little curiosity shops, 
petite restaurants with the marve- 
lous French cuisine, and the lures 
of the Old French Quarter — ail are 
the constant siren call to these 
seekers of merriment. 

The first pangs of curiosity on 
the part of my owner have vanish- 
ed, and she is accustoming herself 
to the surroundings. I, who have 
been long forgotten (except for an 
occasional cross word at becoming 
increasingly heavy on her shoulder) 

am now taken out of my case and 
put in readiness for the first big 
event of the day, the parade of his 
Majesty, King of the Court of Rex. 
The prolonged procession arrives 
with the king regally smiling at 
his loyal subjects from the lead 
float. My shutter must wink once, 
and then again, for there can be 
no mistake on the picture of the 
king toasting, with diamond studd- 
ed goblet, his queen who is throw- 
ing royal kisses from the reviewing 
balcony. Then his entire court fol- 
lows on magnificent floats portray- 
ing the Panorama of the Golden 
Sugar Egg. I shall never regret 
recording a parade such as this for 
anyone. It leaves me focusless. . 

The rest of the afternoon I am 
busied in taking pictures of small 
groups from the school posed in 
front of the historical backdrops 
of New Orleans for my mistress to 
send home to Mom and Dad. 

Then comes the early supper, 
eaten in the preserved atmosphere 
of the Old French in their quarter. 
The old violinist bows a love melody 
as the crepe suzettes are served pip- 
ing hot. As the day's light fades 
in surrender to night's triumphant 
darkness, my work is over. So I 
am put back in my case. But let 
me finish my story of all I see. 

I accompany my mistress back to 
the hotel, and now she is bidding 
adieu to her Senior sisters as they 
leave in the beauty of youth and 
fashion to attend, as a Senior 
privilege, the famous night ball, 
held in honor of that day's reign- 
ing king and queen. 

Now I am bounced as the dash 
is made for the station at departure 
deadline. Although, strangely en- 
tangled in cotton candy, I can still 
view her hasty retreat the famous 
night parade of Comus. It is a 
fabulous sight. Even my time ex- 
posure could never capture the 
warmth and vividness of this scene. 
The flames of the torches of their 
parading Negro bearers can still 
be seen faintly, and the band music 
hums a fading salute as our train 
pulls away. 

It is odd, now, a strange, almost 
human sensation is static through 

my inanimate body like Gulf 

Park girls, I have never had a 
better time!

Southern Splendor Displayed at Gulf Park Festivities 

In all of its splendor, tradition, 
and grandeur, Gulf Park Mardi 
Gras Courts were presented on 
February 22 at 7:45 in the Audi- 
torium. Mary Lou Weston, Mistress 
of Ceremonies, welcomed the 
audience to the 31st Annual Mardi 
Gras Celebration sponsored by the 
Athletic Association. To the sound 
of fanfare, she announced the 
Ladies and Colonels of the Athe- 
son Court, who gracefully took 
their places at the north end of 
the Auditorium. The floor of the 
court was of blue velvet and the 
throne was of gold and white 
satin. A white satin aisle led to the 
throne. Azaleas decorated the white 
pillars of the court and the trellis 
work on the walls of the Audi- 

In the order of appearance the 
court included Lady Margaret Moss 
and Colonel David Booth; Lady 
Margaret Ann Clayton and Colonel 
Richard Wade; Lady Camille Col- 
quitt and Colonel Charles Fones; 
Lady Frances Hodges and Colonel 
Robert Hodges; Lady Melva King 
and Colonel Donald Shriver; Lady 
Nina Speed and Colonel Robert 
Jones; Lady Sunny Mays and 
Colonel Donald Goldman; Lady 
Harriet Eppes and Colonel Walton 
Mahon. To the sound of fanfare 
the grand entrance was made by 
their Majesties, Queen Margaret 
Dierks and King Clifford Romph. 

In all her glory, Queen Dierks 
reigned as 1952 Atheson Queen. 
She was attired in a white net for- 
mal, a jeweled crown, and a silver 
mantle and train. She carried red 
roses. Serving as pages were Alice 
Ann Mitchum and Patsy Wood. 

To the sound of another fanfare 
the visiting Bit and Spur Court 
entered. The Ladies and Dukes 
were as follows: Lady Judy Mor- 
ton and Duke Edward Caprone; 
Lady Ann Wallace and Duke 
Kenneth Etter; Lady Betty Haral- 
son and Duke Charles Fortney; 
Lady Gretchen Gibbons and Duke 
James Pennington; Lady Joanna 
Watts and Duke Donald Innes; 
Lady Marcia Wheeler and Duke 
John Stensel; Lady Ann Cocreham 

and Duke Anthony Dour; Lady 
Vi Anderson and Duke Ralph 
Johnson. The Bit and Spur Queen 
was Sally Shultz and her escort 
was King Ira Hubbell. 

Queen Shultz was attired in a 
white formal and her mantle and 
train were gold and royal purple. 
She carried a bouquet of yellow 
roses. With all the pomp and cere- 
mony of a coronation Their Maj- 
esties Queen Shultz and King 
Hubbell approached the Atheson 
Court and knelt before the King 
and Queen to be crowned. The 
visiting Bit and Spur Court then 
took their places at the south end 
of the Auditorium which was 
decorated with a green carpet, and 
a hunting scene with life size 
silhouetted horses and mounted 
riders formed the backdrop which 
was on black velvet. 

The two courts were then enter- 
tained with Gulf Park talent. Jane 
Dawson, Caroline Janson, and 
Louise Porter really harmonized as 
they blended their voices on Jeanie 
With The Light Brown Hair. 
Marcia Dale and Jaudon Hunter 
presented a ballet dance to the tune 
of Begin the Beguine. Anna Mc- 
Raney played Embraceable You as 
a piano selection. Nancy Rogers 
next gave a monologue entitled / 
Had A Lovely Time. The enter 
tainment came to a close as Ann 
Varnadow sang You Are My Song 
Of Love. 

Following the entertainment and 
the parade of the Bit and Spur 
Court, the first call out of the even- 
ing was announced. The Atheson 
pages introduced the masked girls 
to their escorts who were from 
Keesler Field. The court also joined 
in the dancing and all enjoyed 
dancing to the beat of orchestral 
music. After the parade of the 
Atheson Court, the second call out 
of the evening was announced. The 
Bit and Spur Court participated 
in this dance. 

The Grand March was next on 
the program and as the royalty of 
the two courts descended from their 
thrones, the knights and their 
ladies formed a double line in the 



New Orleans 

On February 26 Gulf Park 
students boarded the morning train 
for New Orleans to be a part of the 
annual Mardi Gras celebration. In 
chaperoned groups of eight or ten 
the girls watched the Rex Parade 
from the windows of some of New 
Orleans' leading stores. Canal 
Street was indeed a sight to behold 
with maskers of every description. 
Indians ran wild, green tinted space 
men and cannibals pursued scream- 
ing Oriental dance girls, ape men 
dashed madly down the street, and 
lively youngsters dressed as bunny 
rabbits posed briefly for the camera. 

The Rex Parade consisted of 
nineteen floats which told the story 
of the scenes reflected to the fairy 
queen through the magic egg. The 
theme was "Panoramas of the 
Magic Sugar Egg." Gulf Park girls 
clamored for the souvenir trinklets 
which Rex maskers threw into the 
crowds. Early in the parade route. 
King Rex made a toast to his Queen 
and also to the Queen of Comus. 

After the parade, groups visited 
the historical French Quarters and 
many enjoyed the French food. The 
Juniors and High School saw the 
Comus Parade which was very 
spectacular with lighted torches 
brightening up the darkened city 
later on in the evening. 

A group of Seniors who were 
very honored to have invitations to 
the Comus and Rex Balls stayed 
overnight at the Roosevelt Hotel to 
attend these exquisite affairs.

and Patsy Wood were honored with 
call outs at the Comus Ball. Several

Trips To 

Two of the top bands of the 
musical world played at Keesler 
Field recently and the Gulf Park 
girls were among the first to arrive 
for the performance. "His Basin 
Street Blues was marvelous" "Oh, 
no, Sophisticated Lady was best!" 
These comments were among those 
made by the girls after hearing 
Duke Ellington on February 5. 
About eighty-five girls attended the 
program and enjoyed every minute 
of the jazz and blues. 

On February 10 about one- 
hundred girls went Racing With 
the Moon and Yaughan Monroe. 
Such favorites as Tangerene, There 
I've Said It Again, and Someday 
were silently swooned over. Mule 
Tram was dedicated to the Gulf 
Park girls and received quite an 
ovation. The closing number came 
all too soon, but each girl is look- 
ing forward to another trip to 

Lillian Moore

tional fame, presented a program of 
classical and satirical dances in the

students took part in "A Day in 
the Life of a Buyer" in New Or- 
leans on March 3. This trip was 
sponsored by the merchandising 
class under the direction of Miss 

The students, some of whom have 
ambitions of becoming clothing 
buyers for stores, commercial 
artists, or newspaper layout artists, 
made The Times-Picayune Publish- 
ing Company's plant their first 
stop and saw first-hand how a 
metropolitan daily is put together. 

Later in the day, as guests of the 
Kreeger Store, the students were 
shown the latest fashions in sports 
and evening wear, and became 
theoretical buyers at this "market." 
After their "buying experience," 
Mr. Harby Kreeger took them to 
various departments and explained 
the policies and procedures of this 
large New Orleans store. 

Their tour for the day was

not the only one that was clacking 
that afternoon. The "camera bugs" 
of the Gulf Park group took ad- 
vantage of their opportunity to 
photograph friends and flowers in 
the Garden Spot of the South. The 
group returned very much inspired 
by the winding azalea, jonquil, and 
camellia trails which made a last- 
ing impression on all.

Boarding The 
S. S. Cefalu 

It was an expectant group that 
boarded the bus for New Orleans 
the morning of March 22. Dr. and 
Mrs. Hogarth and Nancy Eva head- 
ed our party of forty-two Gulf Park 
girls with Miss Picking and Miss 
Schreiber as our chaperons. We 
were to become the 1952 cruise 

Upon arrival in New Orleans we 
went to the Piety Street Wharf 
where we gazed for the first time 
upon the S. S. Cefalu, the beauti- 
ful Standard Fruit Company ship 
which was to be our vacation re- 
sort on the sea for the next ten 

A Dixie Land Band was on the 
ship to give us our last taste of 
true American music for the next 
ten days. Pictures were taken and 
good-byes said as we prepared to 
relax in the tropical sun. 

As soon as we left the harbor, 
activities aboard ship began. Our 
cruise directress pointed out some 
of the interesting sights of New 
Orleans as we glided down the 
muddy Mississippi. Then there was 
much sunbathing, eating, swim- 
ming, and shuffle board. We en- 
joyed bridge and canasta tourna- 
ments in the afternoon, and bingo, 
horse races, and picture shows at 
night, but most of our time was 
spent lounging in the sun and 
watching the waves from upper 

The food on board ship was 
delicious, and since we could have 
all we wanted anytime of day, there 
is no doubt that a few expanded 
waist lines can be spotted among 
the cruise girls. 

Above everything else, the nights 
on the sea were impressive. Just 
picture a cruise ship at sea, the 
sound of the rolling depthless water 

beneath, soft music drifting on the 
air, and a wide expanse of stars 
watching over you. Life aboard ship 
was romantic and out of this wor'.d! 

Seeing Havana 

After a big day of shopping and 
sightseeing and a marvelous dinner 
on board, we were ready to begin 
our tour of the night life in Havana 
at 8:30 on the night of March 24. 
First we went to one of the Hava- 
na auditoriums to see the very ex- 
citing and fast game of Jai-Alai. 
Then we drove through the main 
business district of Havana and 
through China Town. About 9:30 
we arrived at "La Tropicana." The 
setting was definitely tropical with 
two orchestras, so there was con- 
tinuous music throughout the 
evening. Under a starlight sky and 
palm trees we met our Cuban dates 
and danced. At 11:30 was presented 
the floorshow which included an 
impersonator, several dance and 
song numbers, and a novelty act. 
It was at "La Tropicana" that many 
of us had our first taste of some- 
thing resembling coconut ice cream 
served in a coconut shell. 

Tuesday night we were off 
again to the equally beautiful night 
club, the "San Souci." Here again, 
the Havana boys were waiting for 
us. This night we felt a little more 
at ease when we tried our luck at 
the rumba and samba. The "San 
Souci" was also out of doors, sur- 
rounded by formal gardens and a 
pool. The floor show here was a 
bit more fabulous. The theme was 
an African tribal dance. This dance 
presented many colorful and stirr- 
ing acts which held our undivided 
attention from beginning to end. 

Around 12:30 we said "adios" to 
our Havana friends and climbed 
into our touring cars which were to 
take us back to the ship to prepare 
for our trip to La Ceiba the next 


Fun In La Ceiba 

Imagine walking on the upper 
deck of a ship gliding over the 
blue Caribbean and gazing out at 
the sunrise on the sapphire sea 
and the jungles of La Ceiba in the 
distance! That's just the breath- 
taking experience which the cruise 
girls who slept on deck had on 
the morning of April 28. By seven 
o'clock the S. S. Cefalu had ap- 
proached the coastline of Honduras 
and the whole ship was astir to 
see the landing and hear the 
famous International Marimba Band 
which would be on the wharf to 
greet us. The coastline was in- 
viting with cocoanut palms and grass 
huts forming a silhouette against 
the mountains. 

We walked down the gang plank 
at 8:30 to view more closely the 
marimba band and board a first 
class passenger train which belong- 
ed to the Standard Fruit Company. 
From the windows we could see 
the mountain ranges rising back 
of the village which are called 
Sierra Nombre De Dios. Our guide 
also pointed out the mighty Pico 
Bonito which reigns 8,300 feet and 
is the highest mountain in Hon- 

After chugging through Republic 
Avenue we reached Mazapan, 
named after the bread fruit tree, 
mazapan. We next passed by the 
company dairy and the Sugar Mill 
factory at Monte Cristo and found 
ourselves well into the jungles. 
Soon we reached the Salado River 
where a launch called Neptune 
was boarded. Most of us sat on 
upper deck and enjoyed the breath- 
taking scenes while drinking coca- 
nut milk and eating cocanut meat. 
We saw strange birds, tropical 
trees, and native thatched huts, but 
the monkeys were too sly for us 
and kept out of sight. We made one 
stop at an experimental banana 
plantation and walked down the 
rows of banana trees while our 
guide explained how they grow. 


As we began our seven and half 
mile trip again, the marimba band 
on the first deck entertained us 
with "Mumbo" music. This river 
trip was one of the most beautiful 
parts of our entire trip. Soon Salado 
Beach was reached and it was 
indeed a beautiful sight to behold. 
A delicious lunch was served to 
us, and we swam in the Caribbean, 
absorbed the sun rays, or explored 
among the tall coconut palms most 
of the afternoon. The marimba 
band in the open beach shelter 
furnished music at all times, too. 

About 4:30 we boarded the boat 
and then the train for our return 
trip. In La Ceiba we shopped for 
straw articles and mahogony. With 
arms loaded we left the Commis- 
sary and walked to the boat to 
ready ourselves for the dance given 
in our honor at the Company 
Dining Hall. As we approached 
we could see stevedores busily 
loading bananas on the ship and 
knew we were to have a precious 
cargo on the return trip. 

At 8:30 we were taken to the 
dance by train and there we became 
acquainted with some of the Latin 
inhabitants. We found the boys 
very eager to teach us the Mumbo 
and the Mexican Hat Dance. In 
fact, we were having such a grand 
time with our short, dark, romantic 
Latin friends that Dr. Hogarth ex- 
tended the dance to 12:30. As we 
left, our dates surprised us by board- 
ing the train with us to say a final 
"Hasta Luego" (Until we meet 

The next day some shopped and 
others went on a sight seeing tour. 
On this trip we saw the dairy, the 
air port, growing pineapples and 
grapefruit, and the mahogony 

Eleven o'clock was the sailing 
deadline; so we hurried back to the 
boat. With eyes glued to the beauti- 
ful shore of La Ceiba we bid adieu 
to the land of the coconut palm and 
sailed homeward. 

Fashions On Deck 

Even though everyone packs her 
shorts and swim suit for the 
cruise, she has to dress up for that 
important moment when the boat 
leaves New Orleans. The girls this 
year presented a most attractive 
picture as they walked up the gang 
plank on their way to a new and 
exciting adventure in Havana and 
Central America. 

Patsy Wood's petite blonde fea- 
tures were accented by her black 
linen, velvet trimmed, bolero suit. 
Her shoes and bag were black 
patent and her hat was white 
trimmed in black. Everything in 
Pat's wardrobe is lovely, but her 
denim bathing suit is outstanding. 
Don't you know she had fun sun- 
bathing in it? 

Carolyn Furr looked neat and 
sweet in a pink suit made with a 
full skirt and trimmed in gray. Her 
accessories were blue. Susan Gaskill 
didn't get left standing on the 
wharf. Who could leave her when 
she looked so nice in her brown 
linen suit and harmonizing beige 

As always, navy has been a 
wonderful spring color and many 
people are wearing it to their own 
advantage. Alice Ann Mitchum was 
a study in navy and white in her 
navy faille suit with navy shoes and 
bag and white-trimmed navy hat. 
The large middy pique collar and 
white gloves were the finishing 

Eloise Inman also chose a navy 
faille suit-dress trimmed in white 
pique. She had navy shoes, bag, 
and hat. Carol Jean White was 
smart in a navy tailored suit and 
white accessories. 

The cruise brought forth many 
white outfits, too. Frances Hodges' 
suit was white linen. Frances wore 
a navy shantung blouse, white 
shoes, and a white hat trimmed in 
navy. Harriet Eppes selected an off- 


white gabardine suit with green 
accessories to accent it. Her hat was 
a natural straw picture hat featur- 
ing shasta daisies around the 
crown. Margaret Jane Linebaugh 
wore a tailored white suit with 
navy accessories. Could anything 
look better on such an important 
day? Lynn Logan also decided to 
wear white with navy. Jane Willis 
chose a white sun-back dress with 
matching jacket. To show off the 
white of the dress and her tan she 
wore a red, white, and blue scarf 
draped on the shoulder. 

Joanne Payes was different from 
the crowd and wore a coral linen 
sheath dress and matching duster 
trimmed with rhinestone buttons. 
Her linen shoes matched the dress. 

Wearing a light weight wool suit 
with brown accessories was Ann 
Murrell. The beauty of the suit is 
that it looks like tweed yet is so 
light weight. Her roommate. 
Sunny Mays was as attractive as 
always in a beige trimmed in 
brown two piece dress made of 
raw silk. Sunny wore brown shoes 
and a beige straw hat. 

Suzanne Swindell walked on the 
boat wearing a pink and blue check- 
ed suit with a pink hat and blue 
shoes. That pink hat really set off 
her dark hair and eyes. Bobbie Hen- 
son wore a light blue linen suit 
with matching hat and white shoes 
and bag. Have you noticed the 
beautiful tan Bobbie has? Betty 
Garner sailed in a tailored brown 
linen suit accented by white. 

Nan Engler's suit had a black 
skirt and black and white plaid 
jacket trimmed with huge black 
buttons and a patent belt. Nan 
wore a white straw hat and black 
shoes. Cynthia Camp's blond beauty 
was brought out by her electric 
blue suit and white accessories. 

A bevy of Beauties bound for the 
Caribbean, wouldn't you say? 






On Sunday night, March 29, on 
the upper deck of the S. S. Cejalu 
drifted the refrains of Never Put 
Bananas in the Refrigerator as 
Patsy Lord and Paula Sanders ap- 
peared before the masquerade 
judges doing a samba to their 
banana song. They were dressed as 
"Miss Conchita Bananas"-complete 
with a basket of bananas balanced 
upon their heads. 

Also seen were Shirley Cannon 
surrounded by raindrops and carry- 
ing out the theme of "April 
showers bring May flowers" and 
Margie Clayton, who brought forth 
lots of laughter as she posed as 
our waiter, Eric. 

After parading around in a circle 
for the judges, the contestants par- 
ticipated in several games. While 
waiting for the judges' decisions, 
musical chairs, a pineapple sher- 
bert tea party, a potato race, and a 
whistling-cracker contest were en- 

Finally, the suspense was over 
when Dr. Hogarth announced the 
winners. Posing as a native steve- 
dore and peering from beneath her 
huge sombrero, Carolyn Furr re- 
ceived the prize for the most original 
costume. Walking up to claim the 
prize for the most beautiful costume 
was Patsy Wood who sparkled in 
her green sequin Indian costume. 
Shuffling along behind her came 
a negro mammy. Everyone was 
puzzled as to her identity, but the 
voice was a betrayal. The winner 
of the most comical prize could be 
no other than C. }. White. Our 
cruise directress now awarded a 
circus ring master prize to Dr. 
Hogarth for being the only male 

A good time was had by all as 
the masqueraders hurried back to 
their cabins to revert to their 
former faces and figures. 

The Captain's Dinner 

The Captain's dinner on the 
night of March 31, our last night 
at sea, climaxed the cruise. The 
ship's dining saloon was decorated 
with colored balloons and soft 

candle light. The dining saloon was 
filled with cruisers in paper party 
hats who were blowing little tin 
horns and waving noise-makers. We 
all sang a toast to Captain G. S. 
Battig and he made a short speech 
in response. 

Gifts and souvenir menus were 
given to all cruise members. After 
ordering dinner, we all busily had 
our menus autographed. All meals 
served aboard the S. S. Cejalu 
were excellent, but this last dinner 
had the atmosphere and all the 
qualities that make an occasion un- 
forgetable. So for forty-two Gulf 
Park girls the last fulfilled memory 
of a wonderful cruise will be the 
last night out and that special 
Captain's Dinner. 

Cruise Banquet 

On the evening of April 2 Gulf 
Park was offered a glimpse of the 
fascinating Caribbean Cruise dur- 
ing the annual Cruise Banquet. 
After a delightful meal, the pro- 
gram began. Margie Clayton, pos- 
ing as a travel guide, offered a 
romantic Caribbean Cruise to 
three old maid school teachers 
portrayed by Ellen Hanna, Jane 
Willis, and Ann Wood. To get the 
interest of her prospects, Margie 
described cruise life on the S. S. 
Cejalu. Margie described the din- 
ing saloon and described the 
wonderful food, while Diana 
Swartz and Nan Engler pantomin- 
ed that first night of seasickness. 
Alice Ann Mitchum represented the 
"after cruise girl" by posing as the 
fat girl who lost her figure on the 

Joe, the deck steward, was rep- 
resented by Bobbie Henson who 
uttered his unforgettable "darling" 
to all his girls. The Sunkist Kids 
starring Tarries Eppes, Sally Shultz, 
Cynthia Camp, Joanne Payes, Mar- 
garet Jane Linebaugh, and Connie 
Leichhardt gave their rendition of 
a cruise song. Dee Dee Patterson, 
Pat Wood, and Paula Sanders told 
about the various activities in La 
Ceiba. Frances Hodges spoke on 
our romantic Latin dates. The pro- 
gram ended with a group demon- 
strating the Mexican Hat Dance. 
In conclusion, all sang the Alma

The Hurricane Room of Buena 
Vista Hotel in Biloxi was the sett- 
ing of a fashion show on March 10 
sponsored by the National Conven-

The action of the play took place 
in the living room of Mary Herries' 
home in Montague Square, London. 
As the curtain rises Mr. Foster, a 
bank representative, has come to 
talk over a business matter with 
Henry Abbott. Mary Herries find- 
ing that she is alone proceeds to 
tell him who she is and why he 
must help her to escape from the 
ruthless Mr. Abbott. Her story 
forms the plot of the following 

Mary Herries, a rich old maid 
who finds happiness by helping 
others, discovered a handsome beg- 
gar outside her house on Christmas 
Eve and asked him in for a cup of 
tea. Through conversation she 
finds that he is a painter as yet un- 
successful; he also tells her of his 
wife and child and how they 
struggle to exist. Mary gives him 
money and wishes him a Merry 
Christmas, thinking she will never 
see him again. 

Henry Abbott appears again to 
return her cigarette case which he 
stole the night of his first visit, 
with him he has brought some of 
his paintings hoping Miss Herries 
will buy one. She realizes their 
lack of value but cannot resist the 
forcing plea of Henry. He tells 

her that he has brought his wife 
Ada to see her lovely house. Ada, 
waiting outside, faints and has to 
be given a room for the night. 
But the night grows into weeks 
and Henry completes his scheme 
of making a permanent home with 
Miss Herries. The Edwards family, 
friends of Henry, come to visit 
him and while they are there Mary 
Herries suddenly becomes ill. With 
this, Henry's plans for entire con- 
trol becomes complete. 

As years pass f Mary remains a 
prisoner in her own house. Her 
first attempt to get help is by 
giving a note to Rosenberg, an art 
connoisseur but thinking her insane, 
he gives the note to Henry. She 
stands helplessly dominated by 
Henry because she cannot contact 

Finding that Foster believes her 
story she gives him a note. Henry 
is greatly disturbed when he finds 
that Mary has been alone with 
Foster. He asks if she has given 
him a note and Foster replies "No, 
Sir." He leaves shortly. There is 
a ringing of the doorbell and 
triumphantly Mary speaks, "I'll 

With their Oxford accents, the 
cast did a supreme job. Mildred 
Steinmuller was superb and was 
a perfect "Kind Lady." 

Dinner At The 

On Friday, March 14, members 
of the Romance Language Club, 
Captain and Mrs. de Jaive, and

was presented in which Terry 
Allen, accompanied by Ann Cox 
at the piano, sang Lullaby of 
Broadway and Bill. Caroline Janson 
gave a reading of an original poem 
entitled, "Captain, My Captain" 
and dedicated it to Captain de Jaive.

together since Christmas and a 
good time was had by all.

their victory. Thus ended a very 
enjoyable season. Now, on to 

On March 15, the Senior and

in the game that they had capable

Shall Find 

On Saturday evening, February 
16, after the movie at the Y-Hut, 
about thirty girls went over to the 
Speech Workshop to participate in 
a scavenger hunt sponsored by the

ranging from Dean Crenshaw's belt 
to Houston's signature, was given

Dessert Party 
For Samovar Club 

A dessert-party for the members 
of the Samovar Club was given on 
Wednesday evening, February 6, 
in the Art Studio. The studio was 
gaily decorated with red and white 
paper hearts. Crepe paper place 
mats and individual place cards in 
the form of bright red hearts were 
also used. 

Tea was served from the samo- 
var, before an open fire to the 
accompaniment of soft music. 


It would be almost impossible to 
include all the charm and hospitali- 
ty of the old South in one, or many, 
trips. But certainly we found the 
best part of it on the Natchez 

Two large busses of girls left 
Gulf Park bright and early Satur- 
day morning, March 8, for a trip 
through Mississippi and Louisiana. 
Our first stop was Jackson, where 
we were given a very cordial greet- 
ing and shown through Mississippi's 
beautiful capital. Completely fasc- 
inated by the electric voting and 
loudspeaker system in the House 
of Representatives, we made our- 
selves at home in the big leather 
chairs and tried our hands at the 
various gadgets. After a leisurely 
chicken dinner in the private 
dining room of the Heidelberg 
Hotel, we were off again- — this 
time to the historic National Park 
Cemetery at Vicksburg. The Park 
attendant gave us a lecture on the 
famous battle fought there during 
the Civil War and then went with 
us as we toured the Park, which 
extends along the old Confederate 
and Union trench lines. Many 
states of both North and South 
have monuments here, and it kept 
us quite busy looking for one from 
our home state. We went through 
the Illinois monument, and were 
all interested in Missouri's monu- 
ment, which is dedicated to soldiers 
of both sides. We hated to leave 
the lovely grounds but it was soon 
time to be off for "better things." 

Our long-anticipated destination, 
Natchezi was reached in time for 
a big supper at the Eola Hotel 
before leaving again for the Con- 
federate Ball. This charming page- 
ant carried us back to the days 
when Cotton was king and the 
emphasis was on gracious living. 
The stage itself was a masterpiece 
in re-creating a flower-laden South- 
ern garden. No less captivating 
were the elegant "Southern Belles" 
complete with wide ruffled skirts, 
fans, bonnets, panteloons, and un- 
matched coquetry. By the time the 
Confederate soldiers marched in, 
in all their regalia to honor the 
queen, we were completely lost in 

a bygone era and more eager than 
ever to see the homes the next day. 
Back at the hotel Mr. Cooke 
brought apples to our rooms and a 
piece of his birthday cake. 

The next morning couldn't come 
soon enough, for we were to see the 
first of the stately old ante-bellum 
mansions. The old homes were 
dominated by tall white columns, 
graceful antiques, and full skirted 
hostesses who made us feel right 
at home. Each one visited had 
something unique about it and one 
seemed just a little more beautiful 
than the preceding one. Costumed 
"mamies" met us at many of the 
homes with their home-made pra- 
lines, upon which we feasted all 
morning. After lunch at the Eola 
Hotel we went to see more of the 
historic homes. All had one thing 
in common however— the lack of a 
kitchen within the main house. 
Instead, it was in a separate build- 
ing nearby which quarters the 
house slaves, tool room, milk house, 
and so on. Though the homes 
now have at most only a few 
acres of ground they brought 
back visions of miles of farmland 
rich with cotton and tobacco. Too 
soon we were drawn back into the 
realm of reality and dinner at the 
hotel, after which we dressed for 
another excursion. 

Our destination this time was the 
Rose Hill Baptist Church, the 
oldest Negro church in Mississippi, 
where we heard Negro Spirituals 
sung by the Natchez City Choir. 
From the first outburst of song we 
were completely captivated. Not 
only did the choir thrill us with 
their singing but we were given a 
true Southern welcome by the 
pastor. All agreed that the choir 
should be on radio or television so 
that more people could enjoy this 
wonderful group. We were reluct- 
ant to leave the little church, but 
it was a perfect end to a perfect 
stay in the charm spot of the South. 

The next morning we left Mis- 
sissippi for Baton Rouge, Louis- 
iana. There we ate lunch and were 
shown through the imposing state 
capital, which is said to be one of 
the two finest in the United States. 
After lunch we went back to the 
busses which took some of the girls 
into town for shopping and others 
on a tour around the beautiful 
L.S.U. Campus. 

Paradise and 

On Saturday n'ght, March i, 
Gulf Park's Auditorium was the 
scene of an imaginary invasion 
from the spiritual world! Satan him- 
self possessed the stage and peered 
with glittering eyes through a 
blazing inferno of cardboard flames. 
Challenging the realm of Purga- 
tory from the opposite end of the 
room stood Paradise in all its airy 
glory including its dripping angel- 
hair clouds and white pillars. The 
pearly gates stood twinkling with 
star dust and were tended from 
above by a golden-winged angel. 
Devils and angels chased each other 
around the walls from 8:30 until 
12:00 while red and blue spot 
lights threw a profusion of color 
about them. There you have it — 
a perfect setting for the Junior 
Class dance! 

Servicemen from Keesler Air 
Force Base were invited as a ma- 
jority and were introduced to the 
girls by Miss Ramsey. Dr. and 
Mrs. Hogarth, faculty members and 
officers of the Senior and High 
School classes formed the receiving 
line. Music was provided by a six 
piece Negro band from New Or- 
leans. The dancers were also enter- 
tained by various vocal students 
from the college. Terry Allen de- 
lighted the couples, who, were 
seated informally on the floor, with 
her version of / Can't Say No. Then 
Caroline Janson and Ann Varna- 
dow executed a hilarious song-skit 
concerning memoirs of Gulf Park, 
and Marie Mohr sang /'// See You 
In My Dreams. 

When the angel-hair began to 
fall and the flames enveloping Satan 
seemed to die down, the evening 
was then concluded with a break- 
fast from 12:00 until 1:00 in the 
dining room. 

To many a Junior Class member 
who worked hard to make it the 
success it was, this dance will re- 
main a memorable occasion. Hats 
off to the Juniors, for a "good 
time was had by all!" 

P. S. It. was concluded that oc- 
casional realistic flashes of lightn- 
ing from Purgatory proved to be 
the ever-present Mr. Montell with 
his camera.

The time has again approached 
when I must gleefully report to 
each of you a few new "tasties", 
overheard as I found myself perch- 
ed on and, occasionally, off campus! 
After much straining of my own 
plastic ears, may I casually suggest 
that you lend yours also, and hear 
that: Peggy Dierks has recently 
been voted "Miss Pajama of '52". 
P. D. wears many kinds and types, 
and with but a brief glance one is 
able to see her in this attire as she 
sashays to and from class.... And 
while on the subject of frocks — Pat 
Harkins, (you little monkey!) 
Minnie approves of your white 
negligee that you wear so often! 
Who created this attractive gown?? 
What exquisite embroidery, "MISS 
HARKINS"!!! Have you joined 
the Poodle Club??? Nina Speed 
and Sally Shultz are president and 
vice-president, respectively. Do have 
your locks "poodled" and make 
your family happy during the 

summer months QUESTION 

OF THE MONTH: Just who 
would walk a mile for a camel??? 
A box of goodies to the lucky child 
that guesses right.... What are you 
trying to do, Nancy Rogers??? Set 
a new fad with your blue tinted 
hair....Peers to me a new fad has 
started already with all these horse 
and pony tails.... Noticed all those 
tans the cruise girls have??? Now 
me, I look like a ghost beside them 
and that's no joke.. ..Say, Ann Cox 
and Nancy Ford, you two certainly 
plowed through that line to get 
Dale Robertson's autograph. Nice, 
wasn't it??? Happy days are here 
again!!!! Ann Wallace, you can 
smile after all. And the cause of 
this, if my guess is correct, is in 
New Orleans.. .Right, or right???? 
Those roses you received, Carolyn 
Furr, certainly made you smile.... 
NOW HEAR THIS, Sally Jenn- 
ings, how dare you peek your head 
from rooms 3 and 5??? Minnie shall 
never, ever forgive you for this 

invasion Ann Cocreham, are you 

really hopeless??? (ditto Bobbie 
Henson!)....High School girls, are 
you still enjoying your after-birth- 
day-party cigarettes??? Congratula- 

tions to Pat Conklin and her Phi 
Gam pin.... Connie Leichhardt, Ed 
is beckoning to you from Alaska!!! 
Hop on your dog sled. ...Happy 
Mardi Gras Day from Minnie to 
Millie Steinmuller, Ann Murrell, 
Nancy Rogers, Nina Speed, Janice 

Mundy and Jackie Wortham 

"Tunk" Hodges!!! Just who is 
this Charlie child that is taking up 
the time you used to write letters 
to Collins in??? Why the sudden 
smiles, Janice Hanson? Could it 
be that a certain someone has been 
discharged ? Happy Holidays!!! 
Shouldn't the Bell Telephone Com- 
pany give Patsy Lord, Bitsy Craw- 
ford and Lynn Spottswood a dis- 
count? Incidentally, Lynn, didn't 
Robbie pay a visit March 7??? Gulf 
Park was well represented in New 
Orleans the week-end of March 8th. 
Jane Bindley, Ann Ware, Jan Ratch- 
ford, Paula Sanders, Peggy Rucks, 
Ann Carinhas, Lida Cobbs, and 
Douglass Bennett, did you have 
fun???? Lloyd's latest casualty is 
Barbara Perrine. How's your foot 
now??? Jane White, Betty Allen, 
Jane Dawson, and Janice Hanson, 
what are your current plans for the 
summer??? Aha, Harriet Eppes!!!! 
I have heard a secret whistle for 
you from the end of Senior Hall. 
Is this, by some mere chance, one 
of your admirers??? If so, kindly 
tell this person to whistle in a softer, 
more melodious tone!!! Minnie and 
her chums must have their naps.... 
And to a certain Junior: Payes-oh 
enjoyed your conversation on the 

tape-recorder Ann Newman, had 

a sore paw, February 26. What 
happened???? Why has there 
been a certain overnight visitor in 
Margie Maloney and Diane Davis' 
room lately??? Could it be "Birds 
of a feather"??? Have you had 
your morning coffee? If not, see 

"Rhodes" or Joanne Cullom 

From what I hear, Judy Walton 
really had a marvelous time when 
she visited Ellen Hanna at Winter- 
haven, Florida. Did you finally 
meet that someone??? Any-one 
need directions for a trip??? Just 
ask C. J. White. Your instructions 
were for a long way back home, 
eh, C. J.???? Enough said!!!! So 
with spy glass in hand and ears 
temporarily folded up, I depart 

(with my favorite record, "Jet", 
tucked snugly under my arm) until 
next issue. ...In the meantime I'll, 

of course, be seeing YOU Most 

sincerely Minnie Minchell 

P. S. 

Ohhhh girls, you don't know 
what you missed by not going on 
this wonderful, wonderful cruise!!! 
Those Latin MEN!!! Oh what 
dancers, oh what lovers (did we 
find out.) What men, period!!!! 
Just let me tell you about a few 
of the wonderful things we did 
and some of the things that hap- 
pened to us. 

Habana, what a place! !!!Pat 
Morgan, how about the little duel 
that took place all for the favor 
of your fond smile??? and hey, 
Frances Hodges... how did you say 
the techniques of our small Latin 
lovers were??? What do you think 
about feet (fate) bringing us 
together, Sally Shultz???? Big 
things aren't they??? Have you seen 
the beautiful tans those girls have? 
Speaking of Connie and Bobbie in 
particular... Saw Sunny Mays try- 
ing to learn to speak Espanol in 
La Ceiba... How was your teacher, 
Sunny??? Heard that Susan Gas- 
kill's date wanted to show her the 
city even though he no speaka 
ingles... Watch it Sue!!! Gosh, the 
traffic in Habana, the way they 
drive — first one who gets to the 
corner with the loudest horn has 
the right of way.... Hey, Margaret 
Jane Linebaugh, how about a 
nickle??? or maybe a glass of cold 
ice water??? 

Yes girls the cruise is definitely 
something you want to start plan- 
niny now for next year... if there's 
room for any more since most of 
us would give our eye teeth to go 
again next year. Just look at Dee- 
Dee Patterson. This was her year, 
and I can now understand why it 
was.... Well, guess this is enough 
about our friends to the south 
and the wonderful time we had, 
but in case you haven't guessed by 
now.... Minnie fully approves of 
the cruise.... just look what you 
get for your cruise: good food on 
the boat, loads of time for sun- 
worshiping on the top deck of the 
S. S. Cefalu, chance to buy many 
things to bring home, and above 
all your one and only chance to 
meet your wonderful, marvelous, 
Latin MEN!!! Yes, I firmly believe 
in the cruise.. ..Bye now.

The Federal Government certainly has every- 
thing in its favor with the Income Tax. It takes 
the lion's share of wages and profits, but never 
shares one's losses. It's a kind of "heads I win, 
tails you lose" proposition. 

And lion's share it is, for the Federal Government 
not only collects and spends a large part of a 
person's wages but already absorbs 81 percent of 
all taxes collected in the country, leaving only 19 
percent for the states, counties and cities. In 1939 
it was taking only 61 percent, so it keeps taking a 
bigger bite. 

The past experiences of other countries show that, 
whenever taxes absorb as much as 25 percent of 
the national income for any length of time, the 
financial strain becomes so great that it cheapens 
the value of money to cause drastic changes in the 
economy and the life of a people. It would take 
34 percent of the national income now to finance 
the government if it balanced its budget. 

In ten years the purchasing value of the dollar 
has shrunk to 50 cents. The dollar you put in 

your life insurance policy, your bank savings and 
government bonds ten years ago, is worth just 
half what it was worth then. 

The political purpose behind the income tax in 
1 91 3 was to soak the rich, but the tax begins to 
squeeze the poor. In 1933 there were only 1,700,- 
000 income tax payers in the nation, in 1951 there 
were 44,300,000. 

The billions collected in income taxes has made 
it possible for an extravagant government to waste 
the people's money in a spending spree that 
undermines the character of its citizenship while 
it destroys the nation's economy. 

The only way to avoid financial disaster is for the 
people to demand that its public servants cut out 
waste and quit extravagance at all levels, federal, 
state and local. Anyone knows we can't go in the 
direction we are moving indefinitely unless it is 
our purpose to "bust the country." 

It's been "heads I win, tails you lose" long enough. 
Let's get back to common sense and down to earth.
